Quality Distribution, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2011 Results

— Company Reports GAAP Net Income of $0.25 per Diluted Share —

— Adjusted Earnings of $0.20 per Diluted Share Up 100% versus Q3 2010 —

— Frac Shale Energy Business Revenue of $18.6 Million in Third Quarter —

— Boasso Subsidiary Completes Acquisition of Greensville Transport Company —

TAMPA, FL – November 2, 2011 – Quality Distribution, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLTY) (“Quality” or the “Company”), which operates the largest chemical bulk tank truck network and is the largest provider of intermodal tank container and depot services in North America, today reported net income of $6.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to net income of $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2011 was $4.9 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $2.2 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the same quarter in 2010. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2011 was derived by excluding a pre-tax, non-cash charge of $1.4 million for the write-off of debt issuance costs related to the refinancing of our previous asset-based credit facility and redemption of the Company’s remaining 11.75% PIK Notes, and then applying a normalized tax rate of 39%. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2010 was derived by excluding $2.4 million of pre-tax restructuring charges and applying a normalized tax rate of 39%. The Company presents adjusted net income as it does not consider the excluded items to be part of regular operating activities. A reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income is included in the attached financial exhibits.

The significant improvement in earnings for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011 versus the prior-year quarter was driven by a 25.2% increase in operating income (after adjusting for prior-year restructuring costs) resulting from increased energy market revenue, enhanced profitability at Boasso, reduced maintenance and depreciation expenses from the fleet rationalization program, and lower insurance costs. Additionally, interest expense declined 18.8% versus the prior-year period, due to overall debt reduction and significant redemptions of high-cost 11.75% PIK Notes.

“I am very pleased with the Company’s solid earnings this quarter,” said Gary Enzor, Chief Executive Officer. “Revenues associated with our recently announced energy market logistics contract ramped up faster than expected during the quarter, which more than offset the anticipated sales volume decrease in our bulk chemical business. We are excited about the success we have seen in the Marcellus Shale and continue to explore opportunities in other shale regions. We expect continued top line expansion in the energy market for the remainder of 2011 and look to this market as a key growth engine for the future.”

Total revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011 was $199.3 million, an increase of 9.5% versus the same quarter last year. Excluding fuel surcharges, revenue for the third quarter of 2011 increased 5.1% compared to the prior-year quarter, driven primarily by the Company’s entry into the frac shale energy market. Energy market revenues were $18.6 million in the third quarter principally reflecting the Company’s first full quarter of operating under the recently awarded logistics contract in the Marcellus Shale. Revenues from the chemical logistics business in the third quarter declined $11.4


million versus the prior-year quarter, primarily due to reduced volumes. The Company’s initiative to implement electronic on-board recorders (“EOBRs”) continued to adversely impact driver turnover during the third quarter, which has constrained revenue within the chemical logistics business. The Company remains on track to fully implement EOBRs within its chemical logistics fleet by year end, however, elevated driver turnover is expected to adversely impact fourth quarter revenues as well.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2011 was $19.4 million, up 15.5% versus the comparable prior-year quarter, driven primarily from cost containment initiatives, stronger revenue and operating performance at Boasso, reduced maintenance and depreciation expenses and lower insurance costs. A reconciliation of net income to adjusted EBITDA is included in the attached financial exhibits.

Gary Enzor commented further, “Our multifaceted growth strategy has started to deliver positive results. The now-completed acquisition of Greensville provides a strong new market for Boasso’s ISO tank container and depot services business, and our frac shale energy initiative has generated strong revenues. With the EOBR implementation nearly complete, we are looking forward to getting our core chemical logistics business back on track, and we are well-positioned to capitalize on organic and external growth opportunities as we enter 2012.”

Significant Transactions and Other

On November 1, 2011, Boasso America Corporation (“Boasso”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quality, completed its previously announced acquisition of Greensville Transport Company (“Greensville”). The purchase price was $8.5 million, paid in cash, with an additional $0.5 million to be paid in cash, contingent upon Greensville meeting certain future operating performance criteria.

On August 19, 2011, the Company entered into a new 5-year, $250 million asset-based revolving credit facility with a group of lenders (“the New ABL Facility”). This new, larger credit facility matures in 2016, and can be used for working capital needs, to finance capital expenditures and acquisitions, and for general corporate purposes. The terms and conditions, including pricing, are substantially similar to the Company’s previous credit facility, except that availability under the new facility has increased.

Availability under the New ABL Facility at September 30, 2011 was $106.3 million, an increase of $41.0 million, or 62.8%, in availability under the previous credit facility at September 30, 2010. The increase in availability was due to enhanced borrowing base formulas under the New ABL Facility, as well as solid free cash generation, which reduced short-term borrowing needs. We expect availability to remain strong in the fourth quarter, but decline from the third quarter level due to normal debt service payments and the Greensville acquisition.

On July 20, 2011, the Company redeemed the remaining $5.8 million balance of its 11.75% PIK Notes, which is expected to further reduce interest expense in future periods.

Operating cash flow for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $25.2 million, an increase of $13.9 million, or more than 100%, versus the same period last year. Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, net of proceeds from sales of property and equipment, were $13.4 million. The Company spent approximately $9.3 million for equipment to support the frac shale energy market.

“We continue to generate strong free cash flow, and our capital structure improvements have provided us the platform to pursue acquisitions and invest in our energy business. We are currently investing in multiple shales within our energy business, which have attractive return profiles and allow us to


diversify our customer base,” said Joe Troy, Chief Financial Officer. “With the significant refinancings now completed, we are focused on various internal and external opportunities to deploy capital that will enhance shareholder value.”

RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME TO ADJUSTED NET INCOME, EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA AND RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME PER SHARE TO ADJUSTED NET INCOME PER SHARE

For the Three Months and the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011 and 2010

(In 000’s)

Unaudited

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented herein because they are important metrics used by management to evaluate and understand the performance of the ongoing operations of Quality’s business. For Adjusted Net Income, management uses a 39% tax rate for calculating the provision for income taxes to normalize Quality’s tax rate to that of competitors, and to compare Quality’s reporting periods with different effective tax rates. In addition, in arriving at Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share, the Company adjusts for significant items that are not part of regular operating activities. These adjustments include restructuring charges (credits) related to a plan of restructure which began in the second quarter of 2008 and concluded in the fourth quarter of 2010, as well as write-offs of debt issuance costs.

EBITDA is a component of the measure used by Quality’s management to facilitate internal comparisons to competitors’ results and the bulk transportation, logistics and intermodal industries in general. We believe that financial information based on GAAP for businesses, such as Quality’s, should be supplemented by EBITDA so investors better understand the financial information in connection with their evaluation of the Company’s business. This measure addresses variations among companies with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense) and differences in taxation and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. Accordingly, EBITDA allows analysts, investors and other interested parties in the bulk transportation, logistics and intermodal industries to facilitate company-to-company comparisons by eliminating some of the foregoing variations. EBITDA as used herein may not, however, be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies and items excluded or included in the adjustments, which limits its usefulness as a comparative measure. To calculate EBITDA, Net Income is adjusted for provision for (benefit from) income tax, depreciation and amortization and net interest expense. To calculate Adjusted EBITDA, we calculate EBITDA from Net Income, which is then further adjusted for significant items that are not part of regular operating activities, including the restructuring charges (credits) related to a plan of restructure which began in the second quarter of 2008 and concluded in 2010, write-off of debt issuance costs and other non-cash items such as non-cash stock-based compensation. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the consolidated statements of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as an indication of Quality’s operating performance or liquidity.
